cromwell’s skull


cromwell’s skull  (  l i n e s  f o r  l o n g  l o s t  h i s t o r y  )

tatters torch the sprawl of moor

staggers scrap the tips of tors

circles turn the vernal door

addle on for saddle sore

embers dredge the bed of lakes

tremors trail the tail of snakes

seven sees the summer eight

ticking lists for season's sake

stutters pot the holes of cheese

flutters stalk the haunts of keys

murmurs spur the autumn breeze

spurting springs for thirstily

ruffles scuff the ruff of hull

rifles aisle the isle of mull

whispers swell the winter's lull

searching on for cromwell's skull
